On Tuesday, 27 June, an exhibition Pritzker Winners for Oris was opened in Oris House of Architecture, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Oris.
The opening of the exhibition was attended by Ms Sonja Pisarik, curator from Architekturzentrum Wienn, Mr Luka Korlaet Deputy Mayor of the City of Zagreb, Mr Bojan Baletić, Dean of Architectural Faculty in Zagreb.
This year Oris is celebrating 25 years since its establishment, and, in celebration of this jubilee, has set to organize an exhibition Pritzker Winners for Oris 25.
We contacted Pritzker Award winners - the most distinguished architectural prize in the world, with whom we have collaborated in the past 25 years (through publications of their work in Oris magazine, organisation of their exhibitions at Oris House of Architecture and by hosting them at Days of Oris Festival) - to send us an exhibit (sketch, drawing or a model) that represents their work and collaboration with Oris. We are proud to have received 25 positive responses from all over the world.
The exhibition shows a sketch by Hans Hollein, a section and a model of the project Ars Aevi, Museum of Contemporary Art in Sarajevo by architect Renzo Piano and twelve sketches of the Minna no Mori library by architect Toyo Ito. Shigeru Ban is exhibiting a pavilion - a simple system of partitions (Paper Partition System) used for sheltering the growing number of Ukrainian refugees. The laureates Jean Nouvel and Christian de Portzamparc sent us sketches of their projects, and this year's Pritzker Award winner, David Chipperfield, sent us a sketch of the new Museum of Contemporary Art in Bled, Slovenia - Lah Contemporary.
